King Conservation District Plant Sale
Deborah Dupr is author of Vampire of Macondo, the book that tells the public what it has never been told about
the BP-wrecked Macondo well, the cracked ocean floor and the subsequent suffering and dying of wildlife and Gulf coast people since Earth Day 2010. Yeah, wildlife is a wonderful thing. I used to believe that. I was raised in the city, so, all I ever saw were zoo animals, and, sadly most of them had served life sentences; they didn't have much left. It wasn't too long ago that I decided I was dying too quickly. We all go there sooner or later. We wake up one morning and creak one too many times; we pronounce our fear of death, and, then, with the tool of unsupervised exercise, do our best to make it happen. I chose, as my particular poison, hiking. I had just read a book about the many trails in our state. There were, oh, about a gazillion miles worth and, of course, fool that I am, immediately made plans to walk every kilometer; whatever that means. I bought the right
shoes and the right clothes for all four seasons.
